Hi Cyril,

Go through the Installation Guide for Linux in the site :
http://otn.oracle.com/documentation/oracle9i.html

I am not sure if the membership is free but you can give a try.

Regards,
Ash

Hi Mark,

This might be due to CLASSPATH setting. Oracle uses a preset CLASSPATH, hence you will have to unset the CLASSPATH before running the Installer.
----------------------------------------------------------
Unset the environment variable CLASSPATH

For the Cshell:

% unsetenv CLASSPATH

For the Bourne or Korn Shells:

$ unset CLASSPATH


Verify that the CLASSPATH environment doesnt show up with the command:

env | grep CLASS

Now run the Installer.
--------------------------------------------------------------

Regards,
Ash

Ash - thank you for your direction - I will try it first thing in the AM here is an email with advice from some guys that I work with -
***********************************************
Mark,

JRE is Java Runtime Environment.

You're getting an error when it tries to load libraries (in this case,
libzip) dynamically. What this means is that at RUN time (as opposed to LINK time), it loads the libraries and tries to figure out the location of all the function calls it wants to use. If there is a difference between the libraries that the binary was linked with, and the one that it has at runtime, this can manifest itself in the way you are seeing.

libzip.so appears to have come with your Oracle installation, so that should not present any sort of compatibility problem with the rest of the Oracle install. However, it appears as though libzip was compiled against a version of GLIBC that you do not have. It is looking for the symbol "GLIBC_2.0" in your libc, and it doesn't exist.

Do you have another version of Linux that you could try it on? Maybe your libc is too new? I see lots of symbols that have revision numbers in them, and I think this is the one that it's looking for:

% nm /lib/i386/libc.so.6 | grep GLIBC
...
00134d40 B _errno@GLIBC_2.0
00134d40 B errno@GLIBC_2.0

I think you should start by running "ldd" on your jre binary to see what libraries it expects to link against, and which ones it's finding.

Also, something you should know about the Oracle install process... It will re-link the main Oracle binaries depending on the features that you choose on install. Included in this linking information is all the path info to your libraries, etc... so don't move those binaries to another machine and expect them to work - you should run the installer again unless you really know how it works inside.
****************
I will keep you posted - thanks again Ash
